More Graphic Novel Goodness: Sin City

Had been waiting for Frank Miller's Sin City for quite some time. Finally, have managed to obtain a copy. While graphic novel fans have known about the glory of Sin City for quite some time, most people have heard of this rather recently because of the movie.

Miller won both the prestigious Harvey Award as well as the Eisner Award for the yarn Family Values. Miller's black and white artwork in Sin City has a gritty, hard boiled look that has bedazzled fans for years. Told in a film noir like style, its use of light and shadows is MINDBLOWING. Sin City is a masterful demonstration of what can be done with just black and white, with just light and shadow.

Ranjit Babu, you will just love the artwork. [For those not from ISB, Ranjit was a batchmate with superb artistic skills and had actually done art work for the Mad Magazine!]

I had the fortune of reading Sin City before I actually saw the movie .... around 2 months back! It is just AMAZING .... Dhar you should definitely steal it from somewhere and watch it!

Quentin Tarantino has also lent his name to the movie and you found his typical style coming into play when the last story binds all the earlier stories together!

Lost of gross action ..... but simply mindblowing !
